an msnbc political analyst, and willie brown was mayor of san francisco. i have to say one thing about california, mayor, you know, i thought this race -- i'm going to say -- it was like the west greenwich village got the vote for everything. same-sex marriage, marijuana, raise taxes to pay for education. this is the most liberal electorate i have seen out there since lbj's day. your thoughts quickly on what happened tuesday. >> well, i think that what happened tuesday is the republican party literally gave it away. they have been obviously succumbing to whatever was required from the tea party for so long that they have gotten out of step with who the people are, what the people care about, and why the people would be motivated to vote. they didn't do a job of selling the republican party with anything anybody could support. >> okay. what's the suppression thing? we all know usually historically suppression means usually directed at the minority vote. we will make it difficult for you to vote. we will -- what do we call it? i can't remember the old terms. you had to pay to vote.

might see scott brown attempt a comeback. neither of them is seen as by many people, not by all people but by some people, neither is seen as the absolute perfect dhois. they have drawbacks. who else might be considered? i think the national security adviser, tom donlon, if he were offered the job he would take it. secretary of state is considered about the best job for many people. joe biden said when he was a senator maybe he'd rather be be secretary of sfat rather than president and certainly vice president. it's considered one of the better jobs to have, a lot of people aspire to get. the president has to think globally about a national security team. does tom donlon stay as national security adviser? an extraordinary amount of foreign policy is in this administration. it's like nixon and kissinger. big foreign policy designs are made in the white house by tom donlon and the president and vice president. you have to figure out that piece as well as now the cia job as well as secretary clinton, who would like to say as soon as possible. she did before. as i keep saying, secretary pa

america. the panhandle is white but the rest is going more brown and black and white people are not in charge of the rest of the stay electorally as they used to be. this win in particular forces the gop to change their stance on immigration. otherwise, we're going to continue to lose elections for a long time. the pea party is chasing latinos out of the gop, and that is not a long-term winning strategy. >> before we go to break, we talked about and wanted to talk about mayor bloomberg's decision to hold the new york city mare than this weekend. with all due respect mr. mayor, what the hell are you thinking? new york city is a disaster area. thousands are homeless or displaced, hundreds of thousands still without power in queens, manhattan and brooklyn. the subways aren't fully functional. the gas stations are out of gas. staten island where the marathon will kick off with celebratory fan fare is screams for more attention as they try to recover from the devastation to their neighborhood. >> they're putting people in the marathon in hotels instead of people that have no place to live a

, elizabeth warren is up 53% over scott brown, 46%. wisconsin, we see tammy baldwin, 48% over thompson, 47, which is a surprise i think to a lot of people in that race in wisconsin. missouri, claire mccaskill 49% ahead of akin. he has no backing from the establishment and the reprehensible comments that he made. nevertheless, this is turning out to be an interesting story line with female senate candidates, mark. >> 1992 was billed as the year of the women. there were a ton of wom that won election to the u.s. senate. tamron, i wouldn't be surprised if we see a whole lot of women both win election and win reelection come november 6th. you mentioned some of the democratic women who are running. there are actually a lot of republican women. and even if they don't win their contests, they're running some of the best campaigns this cycle. deb fisher in nebraska, linda lingle in hawaii there are lat of women running. >> close to $100 million of her own money in one of her campaign ads. she points out she went through bankruptcy and pulled herself up, which would certainly be an app

that in 200 5. michael brown, the head of fema in 2005, his name is brownie, right? his background is being in the arabian horses networking on something. but president obama's fema director has a very long track record in disaster management and disaster preparedness and has been very much tested during the past four years, has responded very well over and over again. but the other thing that we haven't talked much about is how many private/public partnerships the president has put in place and the willingness to work across partisan lines, which we saw with chris christie and the president. i think in many ways it's been a model of how the federal government is dealing with the disaster. >> now we're getting these stories out of staten island, also in lower manhattan have been affected by this. but there is a perception, certainly from those people that don't feel like they're getting the help that they need quickly enough. >> oh, of course. and look, your point about it being working class, it was stunning to hear governor romney there talking about drilling and the pipeline and co

thing is that jindal is sticking with the cultural conservatism. he's a brown educated guy with a rhodes scholarship but he's for teaching creationism in school. a big part of the tea party thing has been resistance to opening the doors on immigration. that's something he's not dealing with at this point. >> right. >> i wonder how many immigrant families that come to the united states and want their kids to be doctors really want them to study this creationism as premed. do they want them to take organic chemistry or this other thing, this religious thing, john heilemann? are they serious? do they really want the doctors they go to not to believe in science? it's one thing to believe in your religion, which i do, but to go transfer some biblical scripture into science and try to use it for a different purpose than it was meant. it's meant for spiritual and moral leadership, not meant for scientific inquiry. for them to keep doing this like he does and claiming he's going to lead the country into the 21st -- through the 21st century? i think that's kind of not smart or dopey thinki

he has white support and there are places where he doesn't. you know, ron brown stestein do lot of great write being this. he cited a poll among white people who are afraid of racial change, they're giving their votes -- two-thirds of their votes to romney. among white people who welcome it, they're going 3 to 2 for president obama. there is an element of fear. there's absolutely an element of racism. but i think he's going to hold the line on the white vote. i don't think mitt romney is going to have -- be going away with 60%, 65% like he needs to 37. >> to your point, professor, do you think romney and ryan have encouraged what joan has just explained and explains in her piece today? >> absolutely right. i think the reality is this, that they have exacerbated racial tension. they have not spoken directly to it. to john mccain's credit four years ago when people tried to make barack obama appear to be un-american or really other than human, he stopped that. he spoke directly to it and said, no, this is not true. he was across the aisle. he's a deeply and firmly committed republica

brown retained his seat. in the swing state of virginia democrat tim kaine may have been helped by president obama's strong showing with african-americans in particular beat former senator george al n allenby four points. and in wisconsin tammy baldwin defeated former governor tommy thompson, 51% to 46%. the lone pickup was in nebraska where deb fischer defeated bob kerrey to grab a seat vacated by retiring democrat ben nelson. let's take a look at where things stand. two uncalled races here. this is for an open seat in north dakota would be if heidi heidtkamp leaves there. we have not called it. let me run through both of those just to show you the raw vote totals where we are now 0. there's still a lot of vote to count here. leads by 17,000 votes. that is likely to hold everything that seems to be out. a lot of folks believe that will hold. i have a feeling this will take a little while longer. congressman rick bird only trailing by 2,994 votes. that's pretty good math for lack of sleep. democrats may pick up anywhere at least as many as eight seats. there it went. whoop. the cam

progressive senators, notably sherrod brown of ohio have said that's absolutely a non-starter for him. maybe you could structure something way out in the future. but social security really isn't the big problem. and i think that could be fixed relatively easily. it's controlling the costs of medicare. and pulling back on some of the benefits. and i do think the president is going to make a deal that his base will not like, but the republicans have to do the same thing. it's not going to be a real compromise unless there are people who are angry on both sides. >> good point. hey, reid, are we going to get any guarantees if we get $1 trillion in cuts in savings it goes to cutting the deficit and it isn't spent? >> no, of course not. there are no guarantees on any of this side. it's going to be fascinating to watch. by the way, the fiscal cliff is not just the sequester and the bush tax cuts. we also have to add in the alternative minimum tax, which john boehner has brought up that we haven't even dealt with the usual amt fix this year. we've also got the debt ceiling which we're going to reach
